“Everything we expected and more”

The Scandinavian Lodge at Glenmalure was everything we expected and more. It is always a pleasure to arrive at a lodging booked online and find that nothing has been misrepresented, but to walk in and feel the warmth of a home is an added bonus. Angela took care of our every need in advance. She wrote to me and called me before we left home to ensure that things went smoothly. The lodge was perfectly prepared, even decorated for Christmas! She has lovely neighbors that checked on us when we arrived. I could not have asked for more from this lodge or Angela.

“Enchanting cottage surround by beauty and adventure”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

The cottage was adorable and so cozy! The living room had huge glass windows that opened up to a beautiful view of the rolling green hills of Ireland. Every morning the rooms were literally gold from the sunrise and there was even a working fireplace to up the cozy level at night. It is spacious and great for friends, couples, and even family. It is isolated enough to feel like we were getting away from the tourism areas of Ireland and really seeing the natural beauty of the Wicklow mountains. Great little streets to drive and run on, filling homemade breakfast served at golf club with the sweetest cooks, small town is 10-15 minute drive away where we stocked up on groceries and went to a cute pub. You can also drive to the next town over, i believe its called glendalock? where there are awesome hikes through the Wicklow mountain range.

Angela, the hostess, was so sweet and accommodating and really went to extra lengths to help us get to the lodge safely and easily. I would not recommend showing up past dark however, that made it much more difficult to locate.

If you are looking for a peaceful cottage in what felt like the heart of Ireland I 100% recommend the Scandinavian Lodge!
In shorthand:
-peaceful and gorgeous scenery -friendly locals -small town 15 min away - not a place to find busy night life or endless pubs if that is what you are looking for - clean - cozy - everything worked great in the cottage - great hiking within 15 min drive - good running trails - LOTS of things to do nearby are typed up in a wonderfully helpful book that Angela made with numbers, days, and times *** super helpful

Thank you for your review of your visit to Wicklow and my lodge. Your description of your holiday really caught the ambiance of the beauty of Wicklow, its mountains, walks and of course Glendalough within easy distance of the lodge. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the lodge too. I do hope you and your friends will return again for a longer period in the not too distant future. Angela

The accommodation and the surrounding area are fantastic. The cabin itself was very comfortable and perfect to stay in. The host Angela was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Very good price too.

“Delightful place to stay, accommodation A1”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were a party of golfers who wanted somewhere to stay near to good golf courses and where we could feel at home with our accommodation. Scandnavian Lodge at 2 Glenmalure Pines, Rathdrum,Co. Wicklow fitted the bill. The icing on the cake is the small golf course only 100 yds from the Lodge. Stayed last year with other friends & were very happy to return. We'll be back.
